(No, he seems to be a true flat-lander!  All of today’s clue words were old favorites, but three of the jumbles appear to be new.  They have used “culyk” before.  The answer letter layout was a beautifully cryptic jumble.  I can’t always tell when you guys find these hard, or not, so I’ll leave it to you to tell me.  The cartoon was cute.  Blue Jay Way vs. Hoyt Hill.  Ya gotta love it.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —  YUR

    I had no trouble with any of the words, but the final answer took me around 15 seconds. My initial gut feeling was that the second word was IN. Luckily, I guessed that the first word ended in ED. I couldn’t make a sensible word with LCONTIED that ended in ED. At that point, I saw the image and INCLINED just occurred to me. I couldn’t read ‘BLUE JAY WAY’ or ‘HOYT HILL’ on my online version. That’s funny. 🙂 UR, did you find the final answer hard or easy?

    Pretty easy, Vijay. But, I did think the answer letter layout might provide a challenge to some. You know how visual I am. — YUR

    The jumbles were easy, except I keep misspelling DIVINE. My first stab at the answer, without looking at the letters, was SO INCLINED, but the letter layout didn’t fit. Nor was there an S.
    The first go at the two letter spot was the usual suspects; on, it, no, TO didn’t come until a bit later. INCLINED took a bit of time, even though I had thought of the word earlier; I didn’t unjumble the letters as quickly. 😀

    This looks like it would have been a lovely Jumble, however, my ding-dong newspaper reprinted yesterday’s Jumble today. My goodness! LL

    I hope you are lodging formal complaints with you paper’s editor, LL! This is getting ridiculous.

    Second what UR said. Your newspaper is ridiculous. Why don’t you just solve the online version?

    She could at least use this as a way to verify that her newspaper didn’t screw things up! — YUR

    Update….Update…..OK, so someone must have awakened from their nap at our newspaper office. Not only did we have our current 9/15/16 Jumbler in today’s paper (9/15), but the 9/14/16 Jumbler that was supposed to be in yesterday’s paper was ALSO in today’s (9/15) paper. At least the “geniuses” got it in there.

    The Sudoku also had the same issue and the 9/14 Sudoku was in today’s paper (9/15) together with the actual 9/15 Sudoku.

    It is ridicules. The guyz work so hard…then the paper does their “thing.” I love what Jeff (Hoyt??) said about some “genius” not knowing how to cut and paste. That is now my fave quote!

    Linda, I wonder, does your paper have the colored version of the Jumble? Whoever does the coloring has been way behind and I think the may have caused papers that run that version to not have it in time. I’m not sure what the problem would be. Glad to hear they made up for it.

    Great – All’s well that ends well, LL!

    Hey Jeff!! First, thank you for the creativity, time, and work that you and Hoyt put into giving us excellent Jumbles day after day! I may get behind sometimes, way behind, but I never miss one of them!!

    And yes, our Jumbles are actually colorized! Thanks for that info.

    Hey VJay! Thanks to you and our dear Unc. I have gone to the on-line version when I needed to…but sometimes I only have time at breakfast to quickly go through the paper, read the comics, and work the Jumble. Getting to the computer would take more time than I have. Thanks for the suggestion.
